According to her, their content direction didn't synergise with hers.

"Kats is a good friend of mine. The DJs are all my friends, but we were not at the same music-thinking capacity. Do you understand?" said Gashumba in a video seen by this reporter.

"Because what I know about music is different from what they know and, of course, what they know is also right to them and what I know is also right to me," she added.

"When I do things, I want to make an impact in a way that they'll remember."

Sheilah Gashumba said she joined the entertainment show where she worked with heavy hitters like MC Kats, Douglas Lwanga, DJ Roja, and DVJ Mercy Pro at the time Joshua Baraka had just started singing.

But, she said, when she would present his music to her co-hosts and the producers, they took her in circles.

She said she wanted to help new sounds to be explored, but her efforts were frustrated.

Gashumba, who now works with NRG Radio, said she felt the time had changed and there was a need to look at the music industry through a different lens.

According to her, "it gets exhausting" talking about the same things, yet you know you could do better.

She also decided she didn't want to do TV anymore.

Sheilah Gashumba joined NBS After 5 in 2021 after a competition that involved Robinah Nambooze, popularly known as Robin Kisti, who remains a nemesis because she felt the process was unfair.

Gashumba, who moved to NBS from NTV's The Beat, a competing entertainment show, was replaced by Viana Indi on After 5 in 2023.
